johnr: Where is @PeterReader?
Making cynical comments on the TradeMe message boards ;-)
TimA:MikeB4:DonGould:scuwp: Personally I prefer holidays "off the grid" and am pleased these places still exist. If you don't like it perhaps factor that into your holiday choices.
Ya, I kinda like people to just lean how to use the out of office features.
I respect that when you're on holiday you don't want to hear from me about work stuff. We need to use technology to help me honour that respect while also making it possible for your kids to still phone you and say they're ok at the other end of the beach when ask when they need to head back for dinner. I like them to be able to ring the second someone is in trouble.
I like the GPS to work properly and not be watching TV shows of people risking their lives to save someone because the mobile coverage was so poor that it just wasn't possible to get an accurate location to give 111.
I also DON'T want to read another story like the one about the bus that tipped over on the West Coast this summer and people having to drive 15 minutes up a main highway before they could use a phone.
We know how to build this technology. It's time we figured out the funding to make it happen, in my view.
Are you prepared to pay 20%, 40%, 60% more for your service?
You would be looking at paying another 200%, 300%, 400%....
To expand the network from what it is now to cover the whole county it would be in the billions.

TimA: I had a hard time trying to tell if you were joking or being serious.
DonGould: I should get good data coverage anywhere in New Zealand.

I don't think that is guaranteed by the Treaty of Waitangi. Also, the laws of physics take precedence.
Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
